Stitching and Beyond was formed in 2005 in nipaluna*/Hobart, lutruwita*/Tasmania. We are a warm and welcoming group of creatives which celebrates the work of textile artists exploring innovative and diverse approaches to fibre and textile arts.
Members of all skill levels share their knowledge and love of textiles through regular gatherings and have exclusive access to quality workshops led by Tasmanian, interstate and international tutors.
Curious About Our Group?
Please view our current workshop offerings, peruse our image gallery or come along to our next Gathering to share in what we do before you decide on whether to join. We would love you to bring some of your own work too – we all have different approaches to our work with fibres and textiles, and enjoy sharing and being inspired by each other.
Our group celebrates diversity and there is a place for everyone. You are welcome to join Stitching and Beyond and experience textile art techniques at their very best.
